Developers from Ethereum Foundation and members of open source community of ETH are ready to present the first iteration of the Metropolis hard fork proposal by 18th of September. This is reported by the ETHNews.
The Metropolis hard fork will be executed in tow steps. The first "iteration" is called the Byzantine. It is designed to minimize the actions of bad actors within the Etherum ecosystem. The Byzantine hard fork will be integrated into Ethereum’s testnet on block number 1,700,000, which could be as early as Sept. 18.
Main goal of hardfork is to achive more efficient, secure and robust infrastructure for decentralized applications (dapps) and developers.
